Where in Scripture is there reference to God's big nose?


Recently I heard an apolgist or father on catholic radio speaking of being careful not to always literally interpret the bible. He spoke of the Hebrew old testament speaking of God’s Long Nose. I understand this is a reference in judiasm that a person is long suffering.

Please direct me to the places in the bible this is referred to and specifically the hebrew word’s being used.
